Don’t set targets in your practice

Don’t target anything in your practice. You shouldn’t target what you want to see in Vipassana practice. Whatever happens, stay with the experience. Your responsibility is to maintain the awareness – have right view and continue to be aware.

How long? From the time you wake up till the time you sleep. It is very important that you don’t set a target for what you want to see. When you have a target, the mind starts to imagine this, and you cannot see as it is. We want to know nature as it is.

You should not think about the future – e.g. ‘I want to sit for an hour and not move.’ Whatever happens, your responsibility is to be aware of the present moment; any situation, any time. That’s all.
